The changes to support WixUI localization are now in the WiX mainline (aka
3.0). Localization in WiX requires you to pass a "-loc filename" switch on
the light command line. At the moment, there's no way to embed a set of
default loc strings in a .wixlib, so it means that even for 1033 English,
you have to pass a -loc switch. That's a breaking change from the current
version of WixUI so there's some feeling that we shouldn't port the change
to the 2.0 (stable) branch. The downside is that without the loc changes,
it's very difficult to localize the WixUI dialogs. The loc changes also
complicate merging, so only bug fixes would make it into a 2.0 branch with
the loc changes.
All that said...
Is the requirement to change build scripts a big enough deal to prevent the
merge of the loc changes? Feedback appreciated!
